"The New Vision paper just ranked me Uganda's No.1 celebrity. Thank you my Ninja's," Anne Kansiime wrote on her wall on learning that she was ranked the top celebrity. The celeb list by New Vision is for the period starting May last year to June this year.
The list excludes businessmen like Sudhir Ruparelia, Patrick Bitature. Politicians were also not included this time around. The celebrities were picked from music, TV, movies, sports, books and modeling. The list does not take into account how much money one has, facebook and Twitter likes played a role.
Angella Katatumba beats any Ugandan in terms of facebook likes, she has over 300,000 likes though Mark Zuckerberg is yet to verify her account. This could be one of the reasons she takes up the second spot.
Urban TV's Mary Luswata is quickly making her way to the top ten, the next time this list is updated, she could be in the top 5 now that mentions in print, TV or radio count for this particular list not forgetting that New Vision has all of them.
According to the list, Iryn Namubiru was just about to join the likes of Sheebah Karungi, Bad Black and Ragga Dee who are in the next 50.
